'Breaded' Cheesy Zucchini Sticks & Stuffed Cheesy Potato

Recipe for the chicken can be found here.The only difference here is that I added some dried rosemary as well.

It was my first attempt at baked potato & I'm pretty satisfied with the result eventhough I didn't add in bacon bites (my fave but not a very healthy choice of topping). The only other less savoury factor is that it takes more than an hour to bake it.


1 small organic potato
1 tbsp of milk (I used the milk leftover from the zucchini recipe below)
2 tbsps of grated cheddar cheese


1. Preheat oven to 180°C & bake potato for an hour or till tender.

2. Remove from oven & when it's cooled enough to handle, make a vertical cut halfway through it. Scoop out the pulp into a bowl, leaving a thin shell.

3. Mash the pulp, mik & 1 tbsp of cheese. Spoon the mixture back into the potato shell & top with the rest of the cheese.

4. Bake for another 15 to 20 minutes till the cheese turns a nice golden brown.

This was real gooooooood! The inside was oozy & creamy while the roasted cheese on top complemented it perfectly. It was such a pity that i couldn't make more as the other 3 potatoes had sprouted (from underneath which I had no way of knowing since it was sealed in the packaging and hence not quite visible) & so I had to throw them away most unfortunately.

'Breaded' zucchini fries with a twist! Instead of using the usual breadcrumbs, I substituted them with wheat germ which is more nutritious.


1 organic zuchhini, cut into fries
1/2 cup of wheat germ / breadcrumbs (easier to coat than wheat germ)
2 tbsp of grated parmesan cheese
Some freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup of fresh milk


1. Preheat oven to 180°C.

2. Spread out wheat germ onto a folded aluminium tray (for easier washing later) & bake for 1 to 2 minutes (must keep a close watch as mine was slightly charred & I had to scoop away & remove the blackened bits).

3. Remove from oven & pour into a bowl with the cheese & pepper. 

4. Pour milk into another bowl & dip the zucchini sticks into it.

5. Then, coat each with the wheat germ mixture.

6. Place them on the aluminium tray & bake for 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the size of your sticks, till they turn "toasted brown" in colour.

They're such a healthy alternative to French fries, and the best part is that they taste just as good too...juicy & sweet on the inside, with a crunchy coat & slight tinge of saltiness from the cheese!

Beneficial Combination:

Milk + Potato =  Supplement nutrition & enrich nutrients
